Hiiii now that I’ve posted the guildmaster for my new ocverse I wanna give descriptions of all the guilds along with the main one too, because I had a lot of fun coming up with different sort of niches for each one. There are 8 total ones here, and going with the celestial body naming scheme, each guildmaster is named after a planet (and Pluto). I settled on names and epithets for each guild now so I’m excited to share those too. I’ll put all my little rambling info under the cut, they’re by order of story relevance rather than planet order btw
Nova Stella: The Starlight Guild
The main guild of the story is Nova Stella, the starlight guild, lead by guildmaster Venus. It’s guildhall is a large but welcoming building with dorms built into it, it’s in the middle of a town and naturally open to the public. It has a reputation as a guild that will accept anyone into its family, however that family can also be pretty rowdy and destructive, so it’s reception is lukewarm depending on who you ask. It’s certainly a place where there’s never a dull moment though, with a lot of emphasis being put on love of all kids. Family, and friendship, that’s what defines Nova Stella.
Gladiatorum: The Warrior Guild
Gladiatorum is a relatively new guild that has quickly risen to prominence with their guildmaster, Mars. Gladiatorum is where the best of the best go, the true elite, it’s a guild everyone aspires to. Anyone can join, but if they’re not able to meet the guild standards and incredibly strict regiment of the guildmaster, they’ll be chewed out very quickly. Everything about the guild is meant to be intimidating, it’s hall is a very large building with Greco-Roman architecture built to tower over the rest of it’s town. It’s a guild all about power, strength, and control.
Pandamonium: The Grimdark Guild
Pandamonium has it’s guildhall sitting imposingly at the top of a cliffside, it’s a tall gothic building that almost looks like some kind of castle. Supposedly it’s guildmaster, Saturn, is the eccentric type with a fair bit of money to throw around. The members themselves are friendlier than what their exterior may lead you to believe, but their aesthetic is still certainly macabre, some more than others. As its name might imply, Pandemonium is all about the chaos, but specifically they’re all about doing whatever the fuck they want and being themselves.
Dragon Tree: The Greenwood Guild
Dragon Tree is odd in a different way. It has a special guildhall that’s built inside of a huge tree in the forest. It’s guildmaster is Uranus, who has very much embraced the cackling witch look, her guild certainly attracts the more weird bunch. Oddballs and free spirits alike are welcome, as is anyone else, if you’re willing to put up with the eccentricity of it all. Their guild puts a special emphasis on nature and healing, and once you get to know everyone you’ll certainly be treated very warmly in their home sweet tree.
Owl Feather: The Philosopher’s Guild
Owl Feather is a guild with a castle-like guildhall with a large library sitting in the center of it’s town, open to the public. It’s composed of scholars and intellectuals, it’s a guild for true erudites. You don’t have to be a genius to join, the pursuit of knowledge is one that should be open to whomever seeks it in whichever way they choose to. It’s guildmaster, Mercury, is a former merchant who in her travels sought to learn, eventually leading her to the guild of the philosopher itself, under the tutelage of the former guildmaster, Minerva. Mercury's goal as the master is to spread the messages of wisdom and philosophy passed down to her.
Lunar Flair: The Artisan’s Guild
Lunar Flair, intentionally spelled that way instead of “Flare” for the pun, is a guild that highlights the importance of expression, it’s hall is big and colorful, it stands out brightly among all the other buildings, as flashy as it’s members are. Naturally it’s a guild filled with artists, all types of artists, from painters to musicians, fashion designers to actors, it’s a place where creativity and passion thrive. It’s Guildmaster is Jupiter, a gentle giant type who kindly looks after all of his guild members and their crafts. Allowing passion to thrive makes the guild stronger, and they all have their respective flairs.
Cobalt Heart: The Seaside Guild
Cobalt Heart is, as it’s epithet would imply, a guild built by the sea, with docks and ships leading directly into it and everything. It’s not a relaxed happy beachtime though, it’s a tough and athletic guild, all the members are strong and resilient, the guild prides itself on its strength and vigor. Their guildmaster is Neptune, though you wouldn’t be wrong if you wanted to call him their coach instead. They’re a very friendly bunch, and they welcome anyone to join, feel free to improve your body and soul and become stronger together, maybe go on a naval mission while you’re at it.
The Timber Scouts: The Little Guild
Lastly there’s the Timber Scouts, a guild that barely even really counts as a guild. It’s members are all young children and there aren’t even that many of them, it’s tiny. The guildmaster (If you can even call them that) is Pluto, who owns the big cosy cabin in the mountains that functions as their guildhall. Despite being seen as lower than other guilds Pluto does this out of a genuine love for the kids, though they’re a bit of a pushover which makes it easy for the kids to sort of walk all over them. Still the idea behind an “all kids” guild was an important one for them, a place where kids can learn their abilities and how to use them in a guided way.
Me but pink
Welcome • Olivia Rodrigo, icons.
A picture of a mint plant marks the end of this week's plants theme.
Pink moon is on its way
Would I stare into this bay, against this chilly ocean breeze, and observe how the tide moves?
Or should I close my eyes and recall Your hair, the way it flows like these waves.
I've dreamt of stroking my fingers through it, it's almost as if I could see it.
Either gold against the sunlight, or pink like the sunset
Some waves crash differently across the shore, just as Your hair parts variously down the middle.
Who can know how Your gorgeous soul can waver, just like this ocean cannot be tamed?
